At AWWA’s Rocky Mountain Section annual conference
earlier this month, Erie, Colo. was named the best tasting water in the entire Rocky Mountain region. Erie is a small town approximately 25 miles north of Denver.
Participating water samples were rated on such criteria as taste, odor and appearance. The town’s great tasting water is attributed to its water supply coming directly from the Rocky Mountains. At this recent competition, the Pueblo Board of Water Works and Denver Water came in second and third places respectively.
Now that Erie has won this competition, it will go on to compete in AWWA’s “Best of the Best” taste test at ACE14
in June in Boston.
